Drawing Challenge - VEIN




Veronica has kindly hosted our drawing challenge this week
and has provided us the theme 'VEIN'.

As I have studied more botany then anatomy, 
I associated veins with leaves. 

"Veins provide support for the leaf 
and transport water, minerals and food energy 
through the leaf and on to the rest of the plant."



I created a miniature book 
with pages covered with paint and ink
and leaves covered with veins.









I hope to find the perfect quote
to write a few words
on each of the pages. 



To see more interpretations of 'VEIN' be sure to visit Veronica.

  1. This little book is so lovely and I would love to have a go with something similar. It looks achievable. What paper have you used? The rough edges just finish it off beautifully.

    1. Thanks Alison - I am glad you like it, I enjoyed making it. The paper is pages from an old book that I painted over with white acrylic paint. Once they are dry I added a bit of ink that I rubbed in. The pages are folded and torn once they are dry.
